About the Rain

by Stephen Longfellow Fiske


We in California are so thankful for the rain; desperately needed. We are, after all, mostly water. Our clean water, air and land are essential to our survival and sustainable future. The rain wakes us up, cleanses us, replenishes us and brings us to life. We, as a human species, need a good dose of awakening to pull us out of the depths that we have fallen.

A Prayer

Soothe me wind
Wash me rain
Nourish me soil
Shine on me sun
Plant me Lord
That I may grow in the garden
Of Thy Heavenly Grace
